With great joy and gratitude, the Beacon Haven Board of Trustees is pleased to introduce Bonnie Fanz as the new Administrator for Beacon Haven and its Christian Science nursing services.
“Bonnie is ideally qualified to serve our community in this new role,” said Judy Norden Olson, president of the Board of Trustees. “During her decades supporting the mission of Beacon Haven and its predecessor Clifton House, Bonnie has served as both a Christian Science nurse directly caring for patients, as well as in the administrative office supporting patient families and processing the volumes of paperwork required to support the work of our Christian Science nurses. All of us are so very grateful for Bonnie and her service.”
Others have echoed that praise, including the most recent people to serve in the administrator position before Bonnie.

She was a big help in getting our staff through the ever-changing policies.”
